Nathaniel has a long history in progressive politics. In 1997, he founded NGP Software, Inc. (now known as NGP VAN) now a sizable company that is the leading technology provider to the Democratic Party, its campaigns, and to progressive organizations. He served as chief technology officer of the Hillary 2008 Presidential campaign. He also founded Graphicacy, a firm that helps mission-based organizations tell complex stories in visual form, and Timeplots, which creates information graphic products. Nathaniel really enjoys talking to progressive political leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs and technologists, and others who are working on protecting and improving our democracy.

"I am interested in leaders in this fight, many of whom are what I call political entrepreneurs. They are leading the Democratic party and other progressive organizations.Some are even acting as political venture capitalists, evaluating different progressive political projects and deciding which to support."
